Daily Bread – January 24, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) 2 Corinthians 4:7 – But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. The Excellency of God’s Power  The excellency of God’s power is the all-surpassing ability of God – a description of His nature and of His deeds. It is that which surpasses all other things. It is God Who has decked Himself with majesty and excellency, and arrayed Himself with glory and beauty (Job 40:10). Through His great love He has for us, He has poured out this glory and honor as a treasure into our hearts, and has given anyone (who has the will and desire to walk with Him) the divine ability to live His glorious life (John 17:21-23; Colossians 1:27; Ephesians 1:18, 3:16, 4:24; and Luke 24:49; Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; Acts 1:5, 11:16). We have been given the opportunity to be clothed with the honor and majesty of His nature and His presence. God has given to us the excellency of His power out of the abundant riches of His grace. It is a grace excelling in glory beyond what those of the Old Testament had (2 Corinthians 3:10). Daniel had an excellent spirit because of the glory he had received from the First Covenant, and it brought him into the highest honor men could give (Daniel 5:12, 14, 6:3). How much greater should that excellent spirit be in those who now live in the New Covenant! If we will separate ourselves to walk only in the things of the Spirit of God, then we can realize a greater revelation of the excellence of the spirit of God than anyone we read of in the Old Testament. We can grow in excellence of spirit, and excellence in health, as well as excellence in business and finances. Truly, God’s eyes search throughout the Earth to show Himself mighty on behalf of those whose hearts are perfect (2 Chronicles 16:9). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
